My wife and myself were looking for convenient accommodation with which to visit friends for a couple of days. What we found was a very welcoming, clean and extremely homely accommodation with spacious rooms and great hosts. Breakfast was excellent and our only regret was we didn't stop there long enough ! Would definitely recommend and we will be returning.

Stayed for a night, comfortable firm bed, spacious room, good wi-fi, excellent breakfast. I was using it as abase for accessing London, but it is about 30 mins to the Bishops Strortford station in rush hour. Recommended for proximity to Stansted,

We were lucky enough to find this little gem just before Christmas for a flight from Stansted. Our greeting from Ian and Helen was so warm and friendly it was like meeting old friends. The room was clean, comfortable, and big enough for the two of us and our 15 year old son. Ian kindly recommended the fabulous Indian restaurant... More

We stayed for a party in November, Great Dunmow. SO GOOD! we have now booked to stay when flying out of Stansted. Just can't praise them enough for the warm welcome, comfy room and excellent breakfast. The Indian restaurant across the road is to be recommended and just .a toddle off to the comfy bed !
